Sturdy but SensualWhile this bar does come apart and, when assembled, is only held together by metal pins, it definitely IS sturdy and DOES hold together. The first time I put the pins in place, I actually wasn't sure I'd be able to get them back out. My only real complaint is that you have to buy your own restraints, which is really just an extra expense if you don't already own a pair. Other that that, it's a great product!
adjustable, sturdy, travel-friendly
no restraints included, no storage bag included
This versatile bar is the perfect basic spreader bar. Three metal bars assemble to create a spreader of your selected length. Although the pins may seem unstable when first inserted, they DO stay in place when you need them to! Adjustable but still sturdy, it can be used as either an ankle or wrist spreader or in any other way you can imagine! And being adjustable, it's also perfect for travel. With the pins removed, the bar separates into three parts that are only 25" long. So it's great for couples on a romantic getaway or for hiding under your bed, whichever you choose.
The design of this product consists of three metal bars that fit together to create an adjustable spreader bar. Holes drilled in each bar create places for the removable pins to be inserted. Once assembled, the bar is surprisingly sturdy and features an "O"-shaped metal piece at each end so that ankle/wrist restraints can be attached. This product doesn't come with a storage bag, so you'll have to supply your own.
Although it was a little clumsy at times, it's about as easy to use and as comfortable as a spreader bar can be. It's quick to assemble, so there's not a lot of setup required, which is great! It is also lightweight and was surprisingly easy to maneuver around in once it was on. (I never tried walking in it, though.)
The packaging is not especially discreet and it does not come with a case, so if you're planning on traveling with it, make sure you have your own bag.
As of yet, I haven't really had to wash it. Unlike something like a vibrator, I don't know that it would necessarily need to be washed every time it's used. That being said, it seems like it could be easily wiped down with warm, soapy water. Also, the fact that the restraints are removable would make cleaning of both the bars and restraints much easier.
So far, I've found this bar to be perfectly adjustable, sturdy, and well worth the buy!
While I definitely enjoyed it, my partner told me later that he found it a little annoying/clumsy at times. We'll still be using it, but it may take a little more getting used to.
Follow-up commentary 15 months after original review
Saying that I don't like this bar anymore is a little harsh. The bar itself is great. It's sturdy, adjustable, and easy to use. However, I've found that it's more clumsy than exciting, and we usually end up ditching it to just use the cuffs. In short, I don't think it's the bar. I think it might just not be my thing.
